From global phenomenon C. S. Pacat comes the first novel in her critically acclaimed Captive Prince trilogy.
Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.
Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.
For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else...

Extraordinary story. This would make an epic and masterful movie. It seems, in a sense, that it is similar to Lord of the Rings in that in my mind’s eye, as I read, it is a visually stunning tale. It kept me enthralled in a way a book has not done in quite a while. The point where it leaves off to the next book is perfect.
Honestly this is such a good book!! The characters are deep and sophisticated, the twisting political intrigue is incredibly captivating and every detail revealed about the world is absolutely fascinating. I all three books in a weekend and am planning on rereading them soon!
Was hoping for a romance and all there included was abuse, rape, sadism, torture, and beats. Not my idea of a romance. Didn’t get it and didn’t enjoy it either.
